Two people have been arrested as persons of interest in the Dec. 20 shooting deaths of Cromberg residents Mike and Olga Kroencke.

The Butte County sheriff arrested Berry Creek residents G.D. Hendrix, 44, and his mother, Lotta Hendrix, 67, Tuesday night, Jan. 6, at different locations in Butte County.

Acting on a tip, Butte County sheriff’s detectives responded to the Canyon Creek Store at 9607 Oro-Quincy Highway where they encountered G.D. Hendrix as he was leaving the store about 6:30 p.m.

Detectives ordered Hendrix to the ground. Hendrix reportedly yelled back and initially raised his hands. But he then lowered them down to his waist and reached under his jacket.
